The global nature of modern business means that doing business ethically goes beyond the reaches of the Group Headquarters and has far wider implications internationally.
The IBE works at an international level, both with our multi-national subscribers and in close affiliation with other business ethics organisations which are based overseas.
In order to offer more support to our overseas subscribers, the IBE now holds 2 Business Ethics Network meetings in Europe for larger subscriber organisations. These meetings alternate between Paris and Brussels and provide a forum for discussion in a confidential environment.
In addition, the IBE is now represented in New Zealand where we deliver training and offer advisory work.
Our publications are on sale internationally through our website and we collaborate with our international affiliates in the production of research.
